User notes for this item

This is an acapella recording by Shep Woolley, an Ex-RN POGI turned folk singer, singing the song possibly from his Goodbye Sailor recorded at The Whaley Club, HMS Excellent 28/7/76, Sweet Folk and Country - SFA068. My brother was on HMAS Melbourne for the Spit Head review and saw him perform and purchased three of his records. I now have possession of these and as an ex-RAN sailor myself enjoy listening to them to relive my time in the Navy
